Graham Potter has made three changes to his Chelsea side for the visit of Fulham to Stamford Bridge. Enzo Fernandez makes his debut for the club while Mykhailo Mudryk makes his full bow after an exciting cameo against Liverpool.
World Cup winner Fernandez comes straight into the side having trained on Thursday after his £106.7million arrival on transfer deadline day. He will be partnered by Conor Gallagher in midfield who retains his place in the side.
Potter returns to four at the back with Reece James returning from the injury suffered against Bournemouth in December. Thiago Silva and Benoit Badiashile continue their blossoming partnership in defence with Marc Cucurella taking position on the left, with Ben Chilwell returning to the bench.
